As a shapeshifter, you are highly resourceful and able to adapt to any situation you find yourself in. You have a wealth of skills, knowledge, and talents that serve you well in a variety of roles, and you love to step up to the challenge of new opportunities.
You prefer to operate as a jack of all trades, dipping your toes in many different arenas and finding that you have a natural ability to fill any role that may be needed. In a teamwork environment, you are invaluable, easily shifting into new roles as needs arise and excelling in whatever you take on. Because you can assimilate yourself into different roles, you have insight into what others need and what their jobs entail. In a collaborative setting, you understand the value that different roles bring to the team as well as unique challenges they might experience. You can be a leader, a mediator, a strong teammember, or any other position and find yourself excelling in all of them, sometimes filling many different roles in the same work day.
Those around you find your ability to shake things up admirable, be it a new wardrobe or a new role that seems like it would have been difficult for you to step into. You are full of surprises and keep things interesting, and you see no need to box yourself up into one category.
As a shapeshifter, you believe that flexibility is important. You know that being stuck in one mindset or unable to adapt can leave you in the dust, and you are on top of things to ensure that you keep up your momentum—you do not back down from what each new moment asks of you. You value your ability to meet the needs of others, and your inherent ability to work well with others by seeing what they need or want and filling that role.
You fear not knowing who you really are, being misunderstood by others, and becoming something you do not wish to be. Fear is a healthy emotion that alerts us when it is time to get prepared. Fear alerts us to the fact that something needs assessing. When you live in the space of fear it can become paralyzing and confusing. The feelings of anxiety and overwhelm can present themselves as guarded and tense. The opportunity is to embrace the fear as your friend. Shift the shallow breath to a deep breath and ask yourself, “Is this fear justified?” If so, “What do you need to prepare for?” It is also an opportunity to shift your story. Are you telling the story of adaptability vs instability, helpfulness vs manipulation, or empowered by your abilities vs lost in the many roles you can take on?
